The skillsets need to envolve too...
Great article.  Oneo f my biggest fears when it comes to trying to incorporate technologies like Big Data is that often healthcare organizations simply don't have a lot of the expertise needed (yet) to get full use of these new types of data that can be collected.  Hospitals are slow to adopt new technology since there is a lot of critical process that they need to follow, so as new technologies are being introduced, there needs to be a focus on creating process to make sure not just the right kinds of care are applied from a patient perspective, but to make sure the privacy and security of the data is also respected as well.  We'll get there, and I am excited to see the transition that will come to healthcare in terms of better analytics from data.
